"forbes."e picece from when we look at the question of nationalization and what it means, what about to the archives and see what the questions were from 2008. in this article looks at what it means. and it means giving the government the power to control banks. this could mean taking control of the public shares to the power to pick and install new leadership at the bank. let's go back to the o"new york times" op ed piece that says basically of the barclays interest-rate

refuse to do anything about it, but we allow political bullies to intimidate us from even researching the facts. now, there's never been a threat in this country that sportsmen will not be able to hunt or target shoot. that false specter raised by the gun lobby so successfully that dade there is virtually no gun protection. but that doesn't stop the number one gun advocacy group, the national rifle association, from making things up, creating phony threats to gun ownership. they are attacking the obama administration which has done essentially nothing in this field. since they know that congress would reject even the most reasonable proposal. it has been impossible, for example, to even -- to close the gun show loophole where people can get unlimited amounts of guns without a reasonable background check. the n.r.a. is at work to make sure people on the no-fly list because they are threats to national security can purchase guns. that data cannot be shared between a.t.f. and homeland security dealing with potential terrorists. the n.r.a. argues that all we need is for existing gun laws

. until he assured me of that, i would not support it. but he did. this government is now asking us to support a situation where a 13-year-old child could be sent to another nation without any regard for their welfare after that moment. even if we had word from immigration ministers about this being a case by case basis, it is a precedent. this is the most damning thing for our conscience. that is why i feel -- that is why i was so angry about being gagged. i have wrestled, like many others, with their conscience on this debate. but i am entirely consistent with my soul. i will sleep easy because i know from my own background and what i have done in the past that i am going to be consistent, no matter how painful trip might be, no matter how painful it might be to explain it to my constituents, i rest easy on this because i am being entirely consistent with what is within my soul. >> the question is therefore resolved in the affirmative. >> those were the highlights of the australian parliament sitting for june. thanks for your company. see you next time. >> the british house of com
